The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: Sucky.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Yeah, it’s pretty bad. My monitor has a screen that’s 1200 pixels wide—and the text is still cut off. Splash pages, for the most part, are dead; however, this site thinks we all wet our pants just to see what’s basically a logo. A big, fat logo and nothing else. Waste.

Click anywhere on the “home” page and you’ll be taken to the “Our History” page. This site fails to realize people don’t like to read that much text. (Yes, it’s a problem here at WPTS, but at least I’m providing instructions.) The text on the left is also too close to the edge of the screen. A little CSS padding wouldn’t hurt.

Here’s the fun part. Once you’re on a subpage (like “Our History”) and click the Home button, you’re taken to the all-logo “Home” page where’s there’s no navigation except to click and go to the Our History page. This is wrong, wrong, wrong.
